The two redeeming features of the longhouse for me were the location and the bed. You are a 1 minute walk from the bustling area of Petaling street Chinatown which is a tourist hotspot and really close to the train station too which makes getting around easy. Unfortunately the negatives for me outweighed the positives. Unlike other guests who's reviews... More

I stayed at the Longhouse 3 nights, and really appreciate the place! It is quite small, a corridor with rooms, a little kitchen with filtered water and real coffee (not Nescafé!). You can do your laundry yourself, hot water in 2 out of 3 showers and clean bathroom. As I arrived very late, being in a single room, which was... More

This hostel is situated in the heart of Chinatown, and a short (1stop) train journey away from KL sentral. The rooms are basic, and windowless, but the staff make up for it. They are helpful, informative and incredibly friendly. They know the area and were able to suggest fruit stalls, shops and gave quite precise directions. It has a homely... More

What is there to say other than the staff are super friendly and helpful, its cheap and in a great location inside chinatown. The rooms are basic but if all your after is a bed then this is the place for you.

There is no caveat to that title.... the staff are simply the friendliest you will meet anywhere. The dorms have ac, with a price that others hostel don't even offer a fan for. The private rooms are cheap & clean, and the the breakfast is basic, but included in the stupidly low price. There are bbq's, a smoking terrace, free... More

I stayed in one of the private rooms with my boyfriend on holiday in October. The rooms are very small and are basically just a cardboard box around a bed. But it seems quite clean and the bed is nice as well. They have a very decent chillout area that is nice to hang out in, and one of the... More

Stayed here for my short stay in Kuala Lumpur. The bed was very comfortable and the room was tidy, clean and not too small. Staff are friendly and helpful. This is close to bus and rail facilities so it is easy to access from the airport.

Invasion of bed bugs over our beds. Flies and Moskitos buzzing around our room. Stained sheets and pillows. Bed consisted if a couple of piled bricks and a reclaimed piece of plywood nailed on. We checking in around 10pm, and gave up around 2am. Just packed out cased, dumped out key at reception and left this hellhole. There is cheap,... More
